General Information

Neighborhood and Built Environment

Recognizing the connection between people’s health and well-being, and where they live — including their housing, neighborhood and environment — California’s not-for-profit hospitals have developed innovative community benefit programs that promote access to healthy foods for healthy eating patterns; transportation access and mobility; injury prevention and safety; and parks, playgrounds and walkability.
